Sungsic Moon has constructed a unique artistic vocabulary, illustrating ordinary, everyday life with detailed precision and imbuing a sense of personal sentiment and subjective perspective to mundane scenery. Moon’s most recent series of drawings, titled A Mediocre Landscape, uses the technique of scratching with a pencil onto the surface of oil paint, exposing the canvas and leaving a ghostly white line. In these fugitive gestures, the artist captures mundane scenes of contemporary Korea, hinting at the vulnerability felt by its people.

독특한 회화적 세계를 구축해온 문성식은 평범한 일상사를 세필로 표현하며 우리가 무심히 지나치는 보편적 풍경에 개인적 감각과 주관적 감성을 부여한다. 최근 새롭게 선보인 연작 <그저 그런 풍경>은 작가가 직접 고안해낸 방식인 미색의 유화를 연필로 긁어낸 드로잉 작품으로, 오늘날의 지극히 평범한 일상적 풍경과 이를 구성하는 연약한 생명들의 미동을 표현하고 있다.
